Double Chocolate Shortbread Cookies make a beautiful addition to your Christmas Cookie tins! Rich, buttery, crisp, tender cookies decorated for Christmas!
Shortbread cookies are a classic Christmas cookie favorite (these Glazed Cherry Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies are a must make!), but have you ever had chocolate shortbread with chocolate chips, dipped in chocolate?? If not, you are in for a real treat!
These cookies have a bit of a crunch to them, yet they are also so tender and buttery, they melt in your mouth! They are subtly sweet and taste especially delicious with a hot cup of coffee!
We are on a roll in our house, making Christmas cookies, candies, and fudge for parties and gifting this month. We’ve made these Easy Chocolate Chip Macaroons, a batch of Peppermint Mocha Fudge, the Best Chewy Molasses Cookies, and more…with lots more to come!
I love baking with my little ones, and also seeing their excitement when gifting them to friends and family. Lots of sweet memories being made together!
